The Marietta Square is a hip, happening place with a little something for everyone. Music, wine, diverse food, chic apparel, friendly pet stores, you name it and it can probably be found on the Square. Located just minutes from the new Braves stadium and with close proximity to 75, you can’t find a better, more convenient location than the Marietta Square.

Music lover? Nature lover? Combine the two with the Glover Park Concert Series held the last Friday of every month. Great music, good times and can’t beat the location-Glover Park itself and the whole Square area is closed off and turned into one large dance floor! Bring your lawn chairs, tables, coolers and friends and set up to listen to some fabulous music under the stars. If you don’t feel like packing your own dinner, feel free to “order out” from any of the restaurants nearby. You can even bring the pups if you like! Beautiful location to hear some great tunes and people watch.
Farmers Market on the Square-Every Saturday morning, it’s worth the effort to get up and head to the Square for an awesome Farmer's Market where you can find a little bit of everything; fresh cut flowers, fresh from the garden vegetables, crafts, homemade soaps, local seafood and much more. Many of the eateries there also serve breakfast so start your morning off right and enjoy the sights, smells and selection the market has to offer.
Kiosco-Hidden back slightly off the Square on Powder Springs Street is a quaint little Colombian restaurant that, while a little small as to the number of people that can be inside at one time, has a big menu and a very intimate atmosphere. The food though...simply one of THE best restaurants on the Square. The food is authentic, the service is fabulous and there is nowhere else on the Square that has the flavorful sangria they are known for. Always best to have reservations at this one due to the smaller size of the establishment but it's always worth the wait. There is not a bad dish on the menu and it is a great place for a date night.
Anything at the Earl Smith Strand Theater-This legend on the Square has a little bit of everything to offer; plays, concerts, comedy shows and more but the best thing to do is “Brew with a View” offered every weekend. Head up to the rooftop terrace bar and catch one of the best views in Marietta; you can see all of the Square, Glover Park and Kennesaw Mountain from the Cobb Terrace on the rooftop. There isn’t a cover charge but you must be 21 and over. Rainy night in Georgia but still looking for a nightcap? Head up to the Strand’s Lumière Lounge and sink into a plush couch or sit at a café table and let the modern world slip away as classic silent films flicker in the background while a live pianist plays. The Lumière Lounge features specialty cocktails made with local Hometown Honey in addition to a full bar. The Lumière Lounge’s much-lauded specialty cocktail menu and live pianist create a perfectly intimate setting for a date night cocktail. Lumière is held on the second floor lounge Friday and Saturday nights from 7-11pm.
